Jon Beaupre and Cindy Freedman hosted the KPFK coverage of the National March on Washington for Lesbian, Gay and Bi Equal Rights and Liberation, the third such march of its kind in US history. Organizers estimated an attendance of around one million. The controversy over both the ban on gays in the military and the government's inadequate response to the AIDS crisis were the two main foci of the march. KPFK's live coverage of the event includes recordings of speeches by Nancy Pelosi, Phill WIlson, Martina Navratilova, Gerry Studds and Urvashi Vaid, as well as phone interviews with members of the GLBT community.
